I have a 2003 F250 Ford Superduty 3/4 ton 4 wheel drive, 6 ltr pickup. On a recent purchase of diesel fuel, I fould that the fuel had been infiltrated by water from storm water in the area where the fuel...

Hello, Your sensor may be too sensitive after all the water went through. If the truck is running well, the filters must be working. There are some additives which help disperse water in Diesel fuel.
Disconnecting the Batteries was a good idea, but I am sure there are good additives at some busy truck stops. You can get some of the same stuff at Autozone or Oreillys, but they would not know like a longhaul Trucker would.

So I bet the best additives and advice will be found at the Truck stops. You might want to check with your Car Insurance company for coverage as the water problem was storm related via the drains and you are speculating thats the source. Could it as easily be Vandalism? Locking fuel caps may help. For what you spent and may continue to spend, an Insurance claim may be a good solution.

All you can do now is secure the tanks and pour the additives to it.

Ford suer duty 250 diesel has diesel in water

I think you mean that you have water in your diesel fuel. Open the valve behind the fuel/water separator and drain out some of the watery fuel into a pan (place pan under the car). If you have a lot of water in your fuel, you may need to have a professional drain your fuel tank, flush out the fuel system, and try to salvage the fuel for reuse. I hope this helps.

Unleaded gas in a diesel fuel tank

do not worry about draining it, pour about 6 to 8 ounces of engine oil in it, and top it up with fresh fuel, it will be fine. The only way to drain the tank is to remove it and turn it over.

Putting in antifreeze

Drain the cooling system w/radiator. Fill up with coolant/water mix according to the recommendations. Make sure to fill up the whole system (about 8 litres, diesel 12.5 ltr)

Wate in Diesel Fuel

Yes, Diesel engines can tolerate a little water but alot of water (over a period of time) can damage cylinder walls, pistons, injectors, and the injection pump.
